You will probably need to get rid of him. That is a Common Pleco, and it reaches 18" long, and produces as much waste as a 25-30" fish.

I would agree with cody

I had until recently two pleco in a 30 gallons tank they are only 5 to 6 inches but they produce a lot of wastes. then you nitrite goes rapidly high and you will have to make 2 water change per week instead of 1.

if i were you i would get rid of the plec, glassfish, loach. then you would have:
4 angelfish
2 gourami
3 black skirt tetras
3 dwarf frogs

correct?

with just those you would be pretty much fully stocked. if you got cories you would be pushing it.

Is the tank planted? In on the fence about the cories since they're a good clean up crew for any left over food...plus I love my cories!!! That's one direction I was going to go also. 4 angels, 6 cories and a small schooling fish.

Lol one problem with that are the glassfish and loach were the first fish i ever had before (asides from a lousy goldfish) making them leave would tear me apart (jj but would be pretty sad). if i got some cories would they do the job for the pleco, or would catfish do better? (saw really nice catfish at a fish store).

new list (pretty much the same unlsess cories/catfish do better)

4-angelfish
2-blue sunset gouramis
3-african dwarf frogs
5-glassfish
5-kuhli loaches
5-black skirt tetras
1-albino pleco or a few cories or a few catfish

what would be the best amount of fish for my tank (inches/cm)
